Divergent by Veronica Roth
Welcome to post-apocalyptic Chicago. Join Beatrice Prior as she decides who she wants to be for the rest of her life. (Before we get any further, Chicago is divided up in to five "factions") Abnegation, the faction known for their selflessness. Amity, the faction known for their peacefulness. Candor, the faction known for their honesty. Dauntless, the faction known for their bravery. And last but not least Erudite, the faction known for their intellect. Each faction is in charge of different things that keep the city running. Like Dauntless are the "police" of post-apocalyptic Chicago. So, follow Beatrice as she makes a decision (or multiple decisions....) that will alter her life and the life of everyone who lives in Chicago.
I loved Divergent! I don't usually read what's popular. (it's kind of a policy thing, just don't like people ruining the books I read or will read.) I decided that before I watch the movie I might as well read the book. I didn't regret that choice. There is really no good way to describe Divergent, it's really one of those "You just have to read it" books.
I'm so excited for Thanksgiving break! I've got several days off and a book pile that needs some tending to. (Also it's going to snow! I love snow!!!!!!!!!) I'm hoping to finish (or get close to finishing) A Tale of Two Cities this weekend so when Christmas comes around I can read for two strait weeks books off of my (now ridiculous) book pile. I've got to get back to Tale of Two Cities, Talk To You All Later! -Kaitlynn
